Google Charts version '51' is now available.  You can use this upcoming version by loading 'upcoming'.  Please test the new features and let us know if you experience any issues.  

    {packages: ['corechart']});

Anticipated production release date: June 22, 2021
At this time, the 'current' version is still '50'.
On the release date, loading either 'current' or 'upcoming' will load '51'. 

Note that this is a much shorter release cycle compared to previous releases.

This release includes many more internal refactorings and migrations to ES6 and TypeScript, in preparation for the first phase of open-sourcing Google Charts.
